After running a successful cooking school Pascal & Donna Dionot decided to test their skills opening La Pizzetta www.lapizzettaaz.com in north Scottsdale’s master planned community of McDowell Mountain Ranch. As the name might suggest La Pizzetta specializes in the popular wood fired pizza using flour imported from Italy and using local grown produce when possible all baked in Valoriani pizza oven made by hand in Tuscany.
After working in several well respected restaurants in Washington D.C. for over three decades, Pascal and accountant wife Donna, opened Classic Cooking Academy where they teach classic and contemporary food concepts with produce focusing on dietary foundations and using practical skills.
As for La Pizzetta Pascal says “Together, we are able to do what we love most – make people happy through the power of cooking. Making a perfectly crafted pizza is an art form, and we’re happy to share our interpretations of this classic dish with the public.”
The quaint restaurant also serves salads, appetizers and desserts to compliment their pizzas.
La Pizzetta is located at 10411 E. McDowell Mountain Ranch Road Scottsdale, AZ 85255. 480-521-1101 and is open daily Mon. – Sat. for dine in or pick up.
